The Monmouthshire Building Society Youth Cricket Shield is a knockout competition played at Under 11, 13 and 15.  All age-groups play the same 20-over game and the three finals finals are held consecutively on the same day on the same ground at the end of August.

Finals Day 2007

Under 11 Final  -  Chepstow v Llanarth

Llanarth put the opposition into bat and regularly took wickets with some accurate bowling and good fielding which resulted in two run-outs.  Only Josh Tregaskes and Tom Bennett, who put on an unbeaten seventh-wicket stand of 34, could come to terms with this as they steered Chepstow to a total of 93 for 6.  Jake Groves and George Lewis took two wickets apiece.  In reply, Llanarth were never in any trouble reaching the target in sixteen overs thanks to openers Hamish Matthews with 51 not out and Gareth Ansell with 21 not out.  Hamish was awarded the Player of the Match Trophy for his fine innings.

Under 13 Final  -  Blackwood v Newport

A fine opening partnership for Newport between Tom Carter (20) and George Davies, who finished on 64 not out, saw Newport reach a total of 116 for 4. The Blackwood openers also had a good start before Tom Baker was out for 20 and Iwan Gane, who is still only eleven, made a very good 36.  George Davies achieved a run-out from the boundary and took three wickets while Tom Carter took a hat-trick.  With the last wicket falling off the last ball, Blackwood had fallen short by just five runs, finishing on 110 all out.  George Davies was nominated Player of the Match for his all-round performance and Tom Carter was awarded the match ball for his unique feat in a Shield Final.

Under 15 Final  -  Chepstow v Newport

Newport openers Adam Millichip and Tom Cleeve brought up the fifty partnership in 8 overs.  Adam’s was the first wicket to fall for a fine 41, with the score on 86-1 from 14 overs.  Josh Aston then hit seven boundaries in a rapid innings of 41 not out.  Tom Cleeve was out to the last ball of the Newport innings for 42, and the team finished on 148-2. The Newport spinners restricted the Chepstow run-rate so that their first wicket fell with the score on just 21 off 6 overs.  Eliot Evans and Matt Lovett took the score to 92 in the 19th over before Matt was out for 40.  Eliot finished on 34 not out as Chepstow totalled 101-3, leaving Newport winners by 47 runs. Adam Millichip, was awarded the Player of the Match Trophy.
